Too often people are stuck living in the past. They’ll say things like: I wish I could go back to high school. Those were the best times of my life! OR I wish I could relive my 20s. I feel like I missed out!
You are living in regret if you feel this way. Wishing you could relive parts of your life is a waste of time. Fortunately, we don’t have time machines so you’ll NEVER be able to relive them. It’s time to move on!
Instead of living in regret, look to the future instead. Your life should be getting better as you get older. You’ve accumulated knowledge and experience through the years, and now you (an adult person) control your destiny. It’s ludicrous to think the best times of your life have already passed you by. You have the rest of your life ahead of you!
I never understand the longing to revisit a time like high school or uni. These are immensely stressful times where the majority of people lack a basic understanding of who they are or what they want in life. I would NEVER want to relive them. Perhaps some people yearn for a time where they were free from adult responsibilities, but there’s absolutely no use wishing to return to a more immature time in your life. You are an adult now, so deal with your responsibilities and handle your issues.
Don’t forget about where you came from but never dwell on the past. Just remember that you can’t change the past but what you CAN change is your future and where you’re heading. Set measurable goals and work on them daily if you want to change your life for the better.
